Виза во Вьетнам в паспорте Visa to Vietnam

The citizens can visit Vietnam without a visa for up to 15 days. If you stay more than 15 days, need a visa in advance or upon arrival (see more information on how to apply for a visa to Vietnam).

Visa stamp the Russians on the border of Vietnam to be in airports and at land border crossings. To obtain it is necessary to observe several simple conditions:

  • The citizen of the Russian Federation is not in the list of persons banned entry to Vietnam
  • The citizen of the Russian Federation must have a passport with validity not less than 6 months
  • The citizen of the Russian Federation must have a return ticket to the Republic of Belarus or in a third country
  • Since the last DEPARTURE from Vietnam was not less than 30 days (condition was put into effect 01.01.2015)

How is the number of days of stay

In 15 days of stay are included all the day of arrival and day of departure regardless of the hour of your arrival. For example, if you cross the border 1 day of the month, you will have to leave the country not later than the 15th day, i.e. at the rate you have 13 full days. When entering the stamp in the passport would bear the latest date when you must leave Vietnam, and if you pass the exit passport control after this date, it will be considered a violation.

For violation of term of stay, a penalty of $ 5 for each day of delay, but in practice it also happens that for exceeding the border guards might not pay attention, or Vice versa will have to extort a bribe of a few tens of dollars. Anyway, better this time not to break. To extend visa-free stay in any legitimate way, unfortunately, impossible.

Important! Some sites online still you can find the information that for the extension of visa or visa-free stay of citizens of the Russian Federation and Belarus can travel from Vietnam to a neighbouring country and returning back to stamp for 15 days visa-free stay. This information is not true. Starting in 2015, to enter Vietnam without a visa is possible not earlier than 30 days after the last departure.

Hello! Flew for the first time in Vietnam, Nha Trang. Rented bike. KFS, parked next to a bunch of other bikes. Walked around the neighborhood for half an hour, returned my bike, and others on the ground there. Rented a bike from the owner of the apartment that she rented. He phoned the owner of the bike and eventually said that on Monday (since Sunday is day off) I have to go to the police with the owner of the bike for the proceedings. Do you have information what are the penalties for Parking in the wrong place? Prohibition signs were not... were markings for Parking of cars, perhaps the essence of it. The driver's license of the international sample I have, for this, I believe, just fine... ...

About penalties here - As for the lack of an IDP, then the question is moot. After all, if you look purely legally that you can't write,because of the fact that you were driving the vehicle without WU there. So it all depends on your ability to stretch and to explain, I guess. try to include "idiot" and to say that lost yesterday, WU and therefore the transport left in the Parking lot, for example. In General, as the owner of the bike will be with you, I think without problems will solve everything, but as the host you created additional problems, he will ask you to pay rent for all days of downtime a motorbike.
PS If not difficult, write a review then the results of the solution of the problem. ...

Good Day!
I am a citizen of Kazakhstan and entering the island of Phu Quoc from Bangkok by direct flight.
Tell amp-TA trail.:
1. Do I understand correctly from the article that I will put the seal on the possibility of staying just for otsrove. & nbsp to 30 days?
2. If the response to item 1 is "no", then if I can do a VOA (visa on arrival) there on the island?
3. Back in Kazakhstan I will fly via Ho Chi Minh city and in such a case where I would need to do VOA?
4. It turned out that a return ticket in the hall on my 16th day, not the 15th, what can be the consequences? What I should do in advance?
Many thanks in advance for the answer ...

Hello Rinat!
1. Yes, that's right, put the 30 days just to stay on the island.
2. Yes, you can without problems, only need a letter of invitation to be done, and instead of receiving a visa stamp at the border control at the airport you first follow on the counter VOA and all.
on 3 and 4 questions make sense to answer I think not, if you do according to claim 2, don't know why you have a reference for 15 and 16 days, if the island visa-free stay of 30 days. ...
